Prisoners of Power - Laudelino Iglesias Martinez
Prisoners of power
I believe that all prisoners of the world are produced by power and are hostages of power.
Strength, authority, brutality, assassinations, genocide, oppression, slavery, exploitation, destruction, torture, mistreatment,
the sadistic delight in pain, racism, violation, money, corruption and abuse are examples of what is power. The same power that’s
disguised as the absolute truth, as religion, as democracy, as other authoritarian systems, which continue their existence and
the government of our lives.
Power is an enemy of solidarity and freedom, that is why it is our enemy. An enemy that we need to fight until it has disappeared,
because it keeps us all like prisoners and it is destroying humanity as well as our planet.
Prisons are the power’s camps of concentration, exploitation and extermination. They are power’s most cruel spaces, were
torture, mistreatments and assassinations are their basic principles.
Prisons are the worst environment for the fight against power. The main fight of prisoners is the fight for the respect of human
dignity. In prison, they destroy you as a person and they even get away from you any lust for living.
Fighting inside prison is very difficult, but I believe that it is important to fight in those spaces. Fighting inside prison gives you
strengh to continue living, or at least to die fighting power and defending solidarity and freedom.
That is why I am against prisons, because I am against power.
SOLIDARITY AND FREEDOM FOR ALL THE PRISONERS OF THE WORLD!
DOWN WITH ALL PHYSICAL AND MENTAL WALLS!
A revolutionary hug
